LUBBOCK, Texas –

Covenant Children’s has introduced exciting new technology to it’s patients. Script Center is a vending-machine-like kiosk filled with prescriptions for the hospital’s patients.

“The benefit of any retail pharmacy in a hospital is really connecting that discharge process to getting home. So, when you leave the hospital you don’t necessarily want to spend another two hours waiting in the CVS line,” Wesley Wells, with Covenant Children’s, said,  “this kind of allows us to help facilitate that and also kind of address some of those needs as far as getting prescriptions filled.”

Script Center is currently open to pediatric oncology patients. However, Wells said it’ll eventually be open to Covenant employees and the public.
